Some of our congregation

From the Congregation

January, 2011


THE WATER OF ETERNAL LIFE





It was only a few weeks ago we were told that April 2017 had been one of the driest Aprils on record. The news included pictures of river beds devoid of water and there was talk of a possible impending drought. As I now write this the country is experiencing a few days of sustained rain. Gardiners and farmers who were eagerly awaiting rain may soon be claiming that it is too wet.

Water is, of course, essential to life. Humans can only survive a very short time without it. We can live without food for much longer, but a lack of water will soon bring about our demise.

The Bible records an incident where Jesus met a Samaritan woman at a well and asked her for a drink of water. This was quite remarkable because there was a barrier of race and gender, which by custom would have prevented their meeting.

In the conversation that followed Jesus said “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks at the water I give him will become a spring of water welling up to eternal life”.

The water we take into our bodies needs to be replaced each day. This water which comes through our taps from reservoirs and rivers needs to be replaced by rain.

Jesus was speaking of the “water if eternal life”, which satisfies people at the deepest spiritual level. Just as water is essential for physical life, so a personal relationship with Jesus is essential for eternal life.


I hope that many members of the congregation will be prepared to provide an occasional article for the Diary.
